Hey everyone! The next week or two on this blog will be pretty interesting to read since I am currently doing interviews with a Harajuku fashion designer, a cool Goth Youtuber, and Indie horror film makers, but right now let’s focus on what happened this weekend. The first “big” convention that Louisiana has tried to do, which was Louisiana Comic Con. Of course I wasn’t going to miss it. I arrived thirty minutes before it started (10 A.M.) and honestly if I had known how MANY PEOPLE WERE GOING TO SHOW UP I WOULD’VE CAME EARLIER . THE LINES WERE RIDICULOUS. I had to wait in the rain for five hours…
After waiting a couple hours, many people left.
Finally, at three o’ clock I was in, already very tired but ready to document the coolest cosplays and people.
One of my favorites of the day was this girl that dressed up as Go-Go from Kill Bill Vol.1. I loved it.
Definitely the scariest. Whoever this person was needs a highfive.
When I got more into the building I tried by best to take pictures of the overall small convention center.
My only huge complaint was that the organizers should have known that when the pre-sale tickets sold out that it was going to be a big event. They place should have been a lot bigger and at least two days, but enough complaining. Back to more amazing cosplays!

A very sweet person I met here was Krystle Starr. A cosplayer, model, actress, and editor-in chief of Samaze magazine.
She really liked my tongue pill necklace I made and took a photo of it. (I posted pictures of the necklace a few months back). I loved all her outfits.
Next person I met was Jerrad Vunovich, an upcoming actor, who’s been in The Hunger Games, The Starving Games, and recently American Horror Story: Freakshow as one of the carnies.
Here’s him and I with my weird 80’s hair due to the awful weather.
Jerrad was incredibly kind and looked like he was genuinely having a good time. I asked him to give us ideas about what the next season of AHS would be about and he said the only thing he knows is that it involves a “top hat” and that it’s being filmed in Louisiana again. Did I mention this dude is 6’3??
Next up was Trisha Nishimura, an anime voice actress that’s worked with FUNimation entertainment.
She’s done the dub voices for some of my favorite animes such as Shin-Chan and Space Dandy. She was also did voices for Attack on Titan and Desert Punk. I wish I could have talked to her more but she was constantly busy with other fans.
Here is Haiden Hazard aka Rcsixtyfour. She’s a popular cosplayer that’s only been doing it for about three years! She makes all her outfits and props from scratch.
I got to see Brian Steward, an artist, writer, filmmaker, and radio host from Texas. He works with Fangoria and GoreZone. I wasn’t able to talk to him for too long and get a a good photo since many people were surrounded by his table.

Before I left, I saw these beautiful corsets made by CorsetPunk.
This was the first con I was able to attend and I really enjoyed it. I met tons of awesome and talented cosplayers. Who knew Louisiana had all these creative people?
